A handbag is a girl’s best friend; our faithful companion, always there to support us. But it is a very personal accessory and can say a lot about the type of person you are.
We at Cinta Manis have a distinctly bohemian style and we love any fashion inspired by nature and its beauty. That’s why leather handbags are our favorite accessories. This winter, we want to help you dress your bag in harmony with the season.
Everyone has something different in their handbag that they cannot live without. For some, it’s hand cleanser or lip balm; for others it’s extra cash, clean underwear or a spare set of keys. There’s nothing quite as comforting as knowing that you have your little bottle of perfume and your hairbrush in case your date takes an unexpected turn. There’s also no greater relief than having the backup cellphone charger in your handbag when your battery dies and you’re out alone.
As useful as the handbag is, a beautiful one has the power to finish off an outfit. Before leaving the house, most of us feel empty if we don’t have a handbag. Investing in a good handbag is never a bad idea, because you will be able to wear it with every outfit for many seasons.
Winter handbags might have a reputation of being dark and colourless, but this season’s trend is red-hot so you can’t go wrong with a red, orange or pink bag. No-one said you can’t wear colour during winter – in fact, it adds a little sunshine to your day.
A good quality leather handbag is a classic item for your closet that will never go out of style and, depending on the quality of the leather, can last for many years. If you take good care of your bag and make sure to clean it once in awhile, it will serve you well in return.
A good handbag can be dressed up or down with ease – you should be able to wear it with jeans to grab a coffee as easily as with a jacket and heels when you’re on your way out for the evening. A handbag says a lot about your personal style because it’s one item that’s always by your side. So make sure that you buy one that truly reflects who you are.
Your favourite handbag is also a gift to yourself and becomes your safety blanket if you have it for long enough. It’s a way for women (and anyone who wears them, really) to say: “I treated myself because I deserve it. I like to look good and feel good.”
This winter, accessories like scarves and hats are coming in hot in shades of red, heating up the chilly days. Hats are also very in and can be practical, keeping you warm and hiding your hair on bad days, but handbags remain winter’s hottest accessory. This winter, handbag trends include metallic detail, leather of all colours and bohemian chic.
We at Cinta Manis have put our love of nature and beautiful things into our designs, with our Sweet Love of Life collection reflecting our values as a brand. By using traditional Indonesian material and methods in the manufacturing process, we stay true to the place where our inspiration came from.
You can shop our products in the shop and find your best friend – a bag that will stay with you for years to come.
-With Sweet Love
